Central Mississippi Crime Stoppers partners with local Law Enforcement Agencies, the Community and the Media in Hinds, Madison, Rankin, Copiah, Simpson, Warren, Scott, Smith and Leake Counties in an effort to catch criminals and make information available to the public on crime prevention and safety tips.
Crime Stopper Programs are organized as a "Not for Profit Organization" (Charity). A community based board of directors comprised of citizens, business owners, actively employed and or retired individuals, provides direction as to the financial and promotional activities of the program. .
Crimestoppers enables persons with information pertaining to a crime to report it to law enforcement anonymously through Crimestoppers. This is a partnership that is recognized nationally to solve crimes. If a tipster's information leads to the arrest of a suspect, law enforcement will notify Crimestoppers of the tip number that lead to the arrest. The board meets on a monthly basis which at that time approves a reward, up to $2500.00, which will be paid to the tip number submitted by law enforcement that lead to the arrest. The reward is distributed in a discreet and private manner to the tipster. The board nor law enforcement know the identity of the tipster.
When reporting information via the call in number, the text number or a web tip, the tipster will be assigned a tip number. Retain this number for your records. Contact Central Mississippi Crimestoppers at 769-798-4636 a month after submitting the tip to learn if that tip was submitted for a reward. If so, instructions will be provided for collection of the reward.
